Net photosynthesis rate and chlorophyll content of Caucasian and white clover leaves under different temperature regimes
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2005)
Caucasian or kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) was more productive than white clover (Trifolium repens)in New Zealand pastures. Examining the physiological basis for this difference can provide greater insight into the ...
Urine patches in cocksfoot pastures under radiata pine trees indicate severe N deficiency
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2004)
The dynamics of sheep urine patches were measured for two years on grazed cocksfoot dominant pastures grown under 10-11 year old radiata pine.
Tolerance of newly sown cocksfoot-clover pastures to the herbicide imazethapyr
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
In New Zealand, subterranean clover is recommended as a companion legume in mixed swards, particularly in dryland cocksfoot-based pastures. However, establishment of cocksfoot is slower than perennial ryegrass and therefore ...
Sampling methods for clover species in grazed pastures to diagnose mineral deficiencies
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2019-11-04)
Diagnosis of clover nutrient status is important for legume-based pasture systems. The protocols for sample collection and setting of nutrient guidelines are ill-defined. This research quantified how nutrient concentrations ...
Potential yield of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata) monocultures in response to irrigation and nitrogen
(Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2005)
This research quantified the response of pure cocksfoot pasture to irrigation and nitrogen.
Phosphorus response and optimum pH ranges of twelve pasture legumes grown in an acid upland New Zealand soil under glasshouse conditions
(Chilean Society of Soil Science (Sociedad Chilena de la Ciencia del Suelo), 2016-06)
Pasture legumes provide critical nitrogen inputs but fail to persist in typical acidic low P fertility upland soils. Alternative legume species for these environments are urgently sought. Twelve novel legume species were ...
Selection of sub clover cultivars for New Zealand dryland pastures
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
New Australian-bred cultivars of subterranean (sub) clover with high levels of hardseededness are being promoted in New Zealand based on their superior performance in Australia. These new cultivars may not be suited to ...
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
Sowing strategies for slow-establishing pasture species on a North Otago dairy farm
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2000)
Slow-establishing, high quality, pasture species are frequently added to standard ryegrass–white clover seed mixtures in an effort to improve pasture nutritive value. However, intense competition during establishment can ...
Urine patches indicate yield potential of cocksfoot
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Dry matter (DM) production and crude protein (CP%) of sheep urine patches in a grazed cocksfoot pasture (28 day rotation with 21±1 days regrowth) were measured at Lincoln University from September 1999 to May 2001. Also, ...
